Struggling with your Energy? Constantly tired, mentally and physically? Feel like your health is draining away?
Did you know that the biochemical (ATP) that powers us to move, breathe, think, see, feel … is bound to magnesium? Without Mg we slow down, fade and stop.
Magnesium is also crucial for over 325 enzymes to do their thing.
The problem is that magnesium in our food is at an all-time low because of refined grains, soil over-use and mineral depletion, the use of NPK fertilizers, the narrow range of foods we grow and the use of antimicrobial chemicals on our impoverished soils.
We also lose the little magnesium we might get if we drink coffee, tea or alcohol or have too much sugar or just by consuming food with too much calcium in it.
The bad news to all this is that calcium has never been MORE accessible.
High levels of dietary calcium in our blood is usually corrected by magnesium activating vitamin D and driving the storage of calcium into our teeth and bones. Without the magnesium the calcium stays in our blood and gets deposited in our soft tissues, blood vessels, organs and joints. Stones and calcium ‘crusts’ are implicated in a raft of disease states including serious cardiac events (heart attacks, strokes), organ and duct blockages and osteoarthritic conditions.
Mg counteracts calcium in our muscles and makes them relax so we avoid cramps, twitches, restless legs.
If calcium causes the smooth muscles of our blood vessels to contract and there’s no magnesium to relax them again, blood pressure goes up as our heart over-works to pump blood through ever-smaller channels.
In the brain, a lack of magnesium can lead to moodiness, insomnia, depression, migraines, overwhelm, brain fog and mental fatigue.
Mg is also important in protein formation; gene maintenance, DNA and RNA production and repair; neurotransmitter regulation; anti-inflammatory benefits; PMS symptoms including water retention, irritability, cramps and tiredness.
